Summer is the season for sun, style, and statements—with your career and your wardrobe. Even in a recession, you can stay on top of the hottest trends for the office that will boost your career and confidence. Whether you are toning it down or dressing it up, here's how to turn up the heat without burning your career or bank account in the hot summer months.

First off, try a bright floral dress under a cardigan for a professional tone. Flower tops and dresses will brighten any look and can be accentuated with lavish accessories, such as a statement necklace and lots of chunky bangles.
